We visited with my 8 year old niece and we had as much fun as she did. The tour with the owner Bob is a must do, he is very informative and funny too. The animals are well cared for and it's obvious that they enjoy being with him. I've never seen such interaction between a caretaker and such a diverse group of animals. The enclosures were a decent size, some were so large you could barely see the animal if they wanted to stay hidden. If you're on the tour ALL the animals came out to greet Bob. This is off the beaten path so you really have to be looking for it to know it's there but it's not difficult to find I've traveled all over Maine for 25 years as a truck driver and didn't find out about it until about two years ago. It was a 2+ hour ride for us but well worth it.

We went this weekend and it was so worth the trip. Love the vibe, nice, peaceful, relaxed, more natural feel to it. Staff was very friendly. The kids loved feeding the goats. Best part of the whole visit was the baby tiger. We had a great time and would definitely visit again.

This was such a peaceful, calm, and as close to natural habitat as you can get for these rehabilitating animals that I've ever been to. Very clean, and well kept. Staff was very informative and helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

We went on 6/24/14 with our Granddaughters. It was a great experience to see the baby tigers and the wide variety of animals here. It is not a polished Zoo rather it is a more intimate setting. The animals are very well cared for. It was great to see such a selection of big cats in rural Maine. We all had a wonderful time and will return again.

We went to dew animal kingdom for the first time today! I can't wait to go back! It is definitely rustic, but they have such a great variety of animals to look at and learn about. It is also a bit pricey ($15 for adults) but it is a family run business and they have many animals to care for, so it is understandable. It is clear that the animals are taken care of and the staff is friendly and very knowledgable. We didn't go on the tour but we passed the group and stopped to listen to the owner talk about panthers. He has so much to share about the animals in his care. Next time we go, we will definitely take the tour! Can't wait to go back very soon!
